Malison Adventurers[edit]

Three sample Malison adventurers are described below.

Sertrous is a malison Chaos Sorcerer. He lives to discover the origins of the Yuan-Ti anathemas, and so has left his city and departed for civilization. His cold nature and lack of mercy in combat have caused his allies to distrust him, but beneath his scaly exterior, he is lost.

Sorsil is a malison cleric for Pelor trying to prove that his kind isn't always bad. Even with his cold attitude, and the others biased opinions against him, he stays true to his beliefs.

Sassiks never truly knew his family, born and abandoned in a human village and growing up alone, he began to despise his life. On the verge of commiting suicide, he was stopped by an old wizard who took him in. Sassiks life was never the same again.
